I was recently told that there are some guys putting Viper electric fans on 3rd Gen. Hemi trucks? Well well well... that's sweet sweet music to my ears. My next questions are, I have a 2004 4x2 1500 5.7L, where do I get the Viper fan and is there any step-by-step to get that thing in there? Any help is appreciated!!! :help:

Where did you guys get the nut for the fan pulley?

Nut for the fan pulley? I'm not sure I follow but once you remove the stock clutch fan, you just leave the threads bare...nothing else is required.

So when you remove the long nut connected to the fan, the pulley still has another nut that holds it on?

No there is just one big nut holding the fan on the pulley, once you remove the fan, you just leave the bare threads on the pulley bare.

It's not real difficult, the hard part is holding the pulley to loosen the nut. I built a tool, some guys have used vise grips, others strap wrenchs or even screwdrivers. Lots of different ways to do it, but I would recommend against cutting it off with a sawzall, and if you want to ever reuse it you have to store it upright like it sits on the truck.

...the fan itself is one big nut...just one piece... when we took my fan off we just stuck a coupl screwdrivers in the holes for leverage...got it off in seconds...

Heres what I did. After you remove the clutch fan, cut off the first inch or so worth of threads from the clutch fan, and bingo, theres your nut. I took a grinder to mine and rounded off the edges after cutting it.

I did the same thing with the screwdriver trick.

So chefred112, you finally got your e-fan put on?
